With the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G, Xiaomi introduced a linear vibration motor for the first time in one of its smartphones. This, in combination with the system itself, is capable of emulating 4D sensations in order to simulate actually pressing physical buttons.
In detail, this technology is capable of interacting with the MIUI interface itself in order to create much more realistic touch sensations . In this way it is possible to simulate «physical keystrokes» , generating in itself more realistic sensations when closing applications or scrolling through the interface.
Since then Xiaomi has been implementing this technology in several of its latest mobile devices, not only in the high-end range such as the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro , but also in other devices such as the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9S .
What's more, Xiaomi has currently integrated two types of linear vibration motors into its devices, some based on the X axis that allow a more advanced sensation and others on the Z axis , in both cases capable of creating more than 150 different effects.
